of outreach for the physician community. i told dr. lazarus as us coming in, i think it's a very opportune time to have a psychiatrist lead the ama. you may all need his personal help and support, but also i think the country is primed for an important dialogue. there's no question that the recent tragedy in newtown broke the hearts of the nation. but it also gives us an important opportunity to address some issues which have gone unaddressed for too long, gun safety and mental health issues. often they are behind the shadows and not discussed. in the next few weeks, education secretary arne duncan and i are going to be launching a national dialogue aimed at ending the silence about mental health that keeps so many people from getting the help they need. i know the ama has already participated. you had one of her board members come to an at risk meeting sponsored by the vice president and you've already sent a letter to the president and congress offering your expertise as our nation grapples with these issues. and dr. lazarus, i know you and the ama will continue to help lead this convers
regulations under heller, in my view, also covers bands and weapons designed for assault or military use, rather than for lawful civilian use. and the court did not nearly say that such regulations would ultimately survive second amendment scrutiny. it said that heller would not even quote cast its shadow of doubt on such measures should they be considered in the future. now we should have no illusions that adopted measures like these nationally will completely solve the epidemic of gun violence in america. more will be needed to we clearly need to address metal health issues as well as other potential contributors to gun violence such as violent video games, films that glorify murder and mayhem, and other aspects of our violent culture. but if we do nothing until we can do everything, we will all have the blood of innocent human beings on our hands, and we will besmirch the constitution in the process. just in closing let me say that our constitution, as many have wisely observed, does not make the perfect enemy of the good, and whatever else it is, it is not a suicide pact. a suicide p
reality hits us. we have a job to do. we have to take of the thing that is the most pressing on the front end, and, unfortunately, that's kind of the environment we are living in. and it was a very interesting panel, especially the last one, where i was hearing, there's nothing better than congressional staffers. actually talk to patients are going through the clinic. one of the things that, the reality that we suffer with, unfortunately and this is something we all have to deal with come is just the fiscal reality. as you rightly pointed out, it is right now the debate is about budget and at, people are can't figure out to control costs but also how to find actual savings that are scored by cbo. the congressional budget office gets a bad rap from a lot of people, but i'm a fan to have a very tough job to do. they always come out with answers that doesn't please one side or the other side, but trust me it's a very tough job that they have have had to do, and it's hard to please everyone in a town like washington, d.c. they try to do the best they can. i of fort a lot of respect to them. b
and a better world for all of us. so when i talk to groups about, so they say, you know, how do you know it's good to add women to politics? the best news actually comes from the business world. and there are two studies that came out years ago, one from catalyst and one from mckenzie, that i i think are exciting when we talk about why we need more women in politics. and i'm going to read this. so what catalyst found was that fortune 500 companies with three or more women on the board gain a significant performance advantage over those with the fewest. they actually found that there was 73% return on sales, 83% return on equity and 112% return on invested capital. that's huge. add women, make more money. [laughter] the mckenzie found that companies with the highest percentage of women showed the best performance. that's so simple. administer women into the top committees and -- add more women into the top committees and make more money. this research has been taken so seriously that when i was in belgium recently speaking to the people in the european parliament, i learned how they were act
romney and said okay, i'm in? a lot of us assume he had been running for president the whole time, but when did he decide to run? and when did he tell you and when was it clear? >> i think it's a great misconception that he planned to run immediately afterwards. i think it's -- his assumption was that the economy continued to improve our would improve and i think running and losing in '08 was very liberating for him. and he found that he could be very happy. we kept talking around it, you know, we had a very busy, he wanted to talk about it. we had a very busy 2010 client schedule, in a very mitt romney way he said finally, well, on election day 2010, you can do anything for your clients, why don't we meet on election day 2010? i said, okay, i can do that. so my partner and i met him in boston at his condo on election day 2010. and that was a thing when i got a sense that he was really intending to run. it was serious before but i got the sense he definitely was going to run. >> david, covering the white house, i got the sense that you guys thought you were running against mitt ro
